"Roads, Water and Orange
" explores the journeys of life (the roads), their tribulations (the water), and the realization of love along the way (the orange). This album offers an unusual diversity of styles and sounds, from acoustic rock to bossa nova, songs that are both different and together, strung like diamonds along a live wire of ups, downs, and in-betweens. "Roads, Water and Orange" is a journey of souls searching for their Orangeland.
